David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 1/17/06 The fishing this week Continues to be good with all this warm weather, it has been windy this past week but I will take this kind of weather in January anytime. In the last three days my main baits have been lipless crank baits spinner baits and a Wacko worm. The best water depth for me has been five to eight feet of water. On Monday we had seventeen with two over seven and one that weighed 9lbs 11oz.Twelve of these bass came on lipless crank baits, and five on the 6 ½ inch Wacko worm in June bug the big fish hit the Wacko worm in in 5 feet of water. Out of all the big weightless worms that are on the market the Wacko worm is the best one I have found, you can catch 5 or six bass on one worm and it is full of salt and they don’t cost a ridiculous amount of money for a pack. My bigger bass are still coming from main lake and secondary points, good creeks to try are big mustang, Williams, Penson. These creeks always produce big bass this time of year. The best bite for me has still been 10am until dark. Right now the water temp is in the mid fifties. with this cold front The wind is the big factor today it was 25+ all day and cold, by the end of the week the weather is suppose to warm back up. The lake is 4 feet low so be careful running the lake. I am now booking spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates!

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 1/4/06 The fishing this week Continues to be good with the warm weather this past week. The last two days the spinner bait bite has been good on windy points, yesterday all of our bass came on a spinner bait by the end of the day we had 15 with two over seven pounds. The spinner bait we used was a ¾ oz Colorado willow with nickel and gold blades and a chartreuse and white skirt. We had most of our hits fishing the bait slow, most of the bass would just stop the bait, when you get warm weather this time of year slow rolling a big spinner bait on the edge of the grass is a good pattern to catch big bass on lake fork. Red and orange lipless crank baits are and will be my best baits day in and day out now through February. Best water depth for me has been 5 to 8 feet on the edge of the grass on main lake and secondary points. The best bite for me has still been 10am until dark. Right now I am fishing different areas each day. Birch creek, white oak and big mustang are producing some good fish right now. All the bass that we have been catching have been fat and healthy. I love this time of year not many boats on the lake and on any cast you have a chance to catch a bass of a life time. The lake is 4 feet low so be careful running the lake. I am now booking spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates! Call 903-629-7699 or 903-629-5085 cell or check out my website at www.lakeforktexasfishingreports.com Until next time.

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 12/22/05 With the weather still up and down the fishing has been slow for numbers. But the quality of the bass we are catching right now makes up for the quantity. This week most of our bass have came on lipless crank baits in red and orange, a suspending rogue is also producing some big bass this past week. Yesterday we stayed with the lipless crank baits and suspending rogue all day and we boated 11 bass, but our hard work paid off right before dark Bill West fishing with me, caught the Big One of the day this bass weighed 10lbs 3oz and this big bass came on the suspending rogue way to go Bill. Best water depth for me has been 5 to 8 feet of water over the grass. The bass we caught this week have come from mid lake to the dam, good creeks that are producing good fish for me are Wolfe, Little Caney and Chaney Branch. I have been keeping my boat in ten feet of water and fishing the outside edge of the grass. A medium to fast retrieve on the lipless crank baits has worked best for me. These bass are scattered, so fish these areas 2 or 3 times before you leave and come back later in the day and hit them again. The best bite for me has been 10am until dark. This pattern is only going to get better on into January and February. The key to catching these bass is to fish the greenest grass you can find. If you are not familiar with Lake Fork the best way to locate the greenest grass beds is to look for the Coots. This birds only feed on grass, and if you see a huge concentration of these birds you can bet you will find a lot of green grass in the area. The lake is about 4 feet low so be careful running the lake. I always look forward to this time of year because on Lake Fork you are just one castaway from catching that Bass of a lifetime. I am now booking spring trips. Book early to get best available dates. Call David Vance’s Lake Fork Guide Service and Lodging and Book your Trophy Bass Trip Today. 903-629-7699 or 903-629-5085 Cell.

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 12/15/05 With the mild weather this past week the fishing on lake fork has been good on lipless crank baits. Red has been the best color and water depth five to eight feet on the edge of the grass. The best places to look for is at the mouths of the major creeks. The key right now is to cover as much water as you can. These bass are scattered over the grass, therefore when you go down a bank turn around and fish it again. These bass are not chasing the bait ,you have to get it close to them before they will hit it. So each place you fish, hit it 2 or 3 times before you leave. Most of the bass we are catching are from the main point half way back in the creeks. Yesterday we put 12 bass in the boat with one that weighed 9lbs 12oz all our bass came on red lipless crank baits. This pattern will be red hot now through Jan & Feb. Right now I am using 15lb test line and a high speed reel on a medium action rod. A medium to fast retrieve has worked best for me. Most of the bass are just stopping the bait almost like you hit a stump. So at first don’t assume you have hung up, if the bait stops go ahead and set the hook. Fishing this pattern you will get a lot of short hits, so it is very important to have sharp hooks. I always change the hooks on all my crank baits. The ones out of the pack just will not do. The lake is about four feet low so be careful running the lake. I always look forward to this time of year, because it is the start of our big bass season . So if you are serious about catching a trophy bass, now is the time to start planning your trips to lake fork. I am now booking spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates!

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 11/5/05 The fishing this week Continues to be great, the wind has made it hard to stay on the deep fish. The last two days the spinner bait bite has been good on windy points, yesterday all of our bass came on a spinner bait by the end of the day we had 27 with two over seven pounds. The spinner bait we used was a ½ oz Colorado willow with nickel and gold blades and a chartreuse and white skirt. We had most of our hits fishing the bait fast, and when they hit your spinner bait they would almost take the rod out of your hand. The deep bite is steal good but with this wind it has made it hard to fish the open water, the jigging spoon and Carolina rig has worked best for me to catch the deeper bass. With this warm weather the bass fishing has stayed consistent on lake fork. The forecast for next week looks like more warm weather, and the patterns will stay the same. The water temp is in the mid 60’s right now. When the next cold front comes in that is when the deep jigging spoon bite will be on. In November a spoon is one of the best baits you can have in the boat. When these bass get bunched up in deep water on lake fork you can catch them all day long, and a spoon is a easy way to fish and it will produce good numbers of big bass this time of year. The lake is 3 ½ feet low so be careful running the lake. I am now booking fall and spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates!

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 10/30/05 The Fall fishing this week Continues to be great, with good numbers of quality bass both shallow and deep. The early morning bite has been good on spinner baits and wacky worms. Best spinner bait for me has been a ¼ ounce Colorado willow with nickel and gold blade and a chartreuse and white skirt. This time of the year I will fish the spinner bait fast on the edge of the grass lines in 2-3 ft. of water. Best places right now are the main lake points and secondary points. In the same areas a wacky worm will produce some good fish . The worm I am using is a trick worm and the best colors have been June bug and watermelon red flake. This early morning bite has been good for the first three hours of the day. At mid-morning I have been moving out to a deep pattern with a jigging spoon and a Carolina rig, in 15-25 ft. of water. Yesterday we boated 46 bass and about 30 came on the jigging spoon and Carolina rig. Best places for the deep bite are creek channel bends and main lake humps/road beds. Some of the road beds that always produce this time of year are the 515 east and west and the 2946 road beds. This week the three biggest bass we boated came off the 515 east bridge in 25 ft. of water. 2 over 7lbs. and one over 8lbs.. November is jigging spoon month on Lake Fork. The bass are starting to bunch up and a jigging spoon will put a lot of big bass in the boat I am now booking fall and spring dates. Book early to get the best available dates!

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report Week Of 10/12/05 After long hot summer, fall is finally here and with it comes some fantastic fishing! The bass are schooling all over the lake and the fishing this week has been great! Best baits for me right now has been a ¼ ounce spinner bait w/nickle and gold willow leaf blades and a ½ ounce smokie joe rat-l trap. Also a Carolina rig with a watermelon seed fluke and a watermelon seed centipede. Best places for me has been main lake and secondary points in 10-15 feet of water. About mid-day bass are schooling under the 515 east and west bridges, and when these bass come up you can catch them on every cast. Tom Head and his son Bobby Head, just back from Iraq fished with me yesterday and boated over 70 bass. No wall hangers but we had a lot of 2-3 pounders. Fall is a fun time to fish Lake Fork, the action can last all day. With the water cooling down, the bigger bass will start cruising the shallow grass lines and lilly pads. You will see a lot of big bass caught in the next few weeks. If you would like to book a guide trip and get in some great fall fishing, give me a call. I am now booking fall and spring dates.

Report...
Fished half-day on Thursday. The tides are running higher than last week, you can now go to places that have been to shallow to run into. We started and ended the day with a straight East wind which almost always slows things down in our area. Our first drift was not an indication of what the day would bring. We began in about two feet of clear water throwing tops in various colors. We picked up a keeper red, trout and a few rats within five minutes that made the morning seem alive. We had many follow ups from non committing redfish and trout. They would just slap it one time and follow the topwater all the way to the boat. We went back around for another drift hoping the bite would get better. And again some more slaps on our tops but no hook sets. Bait was present but not very active neither were the gamefish. We did alot of running (deep,shallow,mud,sand,grass,potholes,shell,clear,green,brown) around trying to locate fish concentrations but found none. Did see scattered redfish and some trout but nothing note worthy. The best bite was the first hour and a half after that it shut down with the exception of a few rats. The tide was slack for most of the day. But with the Southeast wind forecasted to blow by this weekend look for things to improve. The pearl white skittlewalker recieved the most interest for the third week in a row. I will be on the water for the next three days, fishing mornings, afternoons, and evenings, so I will have a better report on which time of day is best. Will report when I get back on Sunday. Water is looking better each week. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

Saturday's fishing was a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Limits of redfish and more. Fished a couple out of San Antonio who experienced something that doesn't occur to often. They saw bird and tail action all day. We fished pods upon pods of redfish. With the major shirmp hatch in full swing. The seagulls will show you where the fish are this time of year. Pay attention to what the birds are doing even if they are just sitting in the water. During early morning and late afternoon hours you can experience phenomenal tail action and even get as close as a rod length away. Brown tide is spotty from the East Cut to South Padre, but it changes weekly, although some areas are looking better than they were before. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report 03/24/05 Hello from Lake Fork, Texas! The fishing this week and last week has been great! Good numbers and quality fish. This week the females where in 5-8 ft. of water just off the flats. This is where all of our bigger fish were caught. Long time customer Wally Cutwright from West Virginia boated an 11lb. 4oz. Thursday of last week. Friday the wind was blowing 20+ mph. And we headed to Birch creek to avoid it. By 11:00am he had boated a 6 ½ pounder and one just over 8lbs. These fish came on a watermelon red flake “sticko” and a trick worm fished weightless. The key to fishing these baits is to fish them EXTEMLY slow. By the end of this coming week the major spawn will be on! Just in the past week I have seen beds everywhere we fished. Starting now and thru all of April, I predict this will be one of the best spawns we have seen in years. There has been five bass over 13lbs. caught out of Fork in the past month and a half. It looks like April could be a banner month for trophy bass. Good Fishing! David Vance Spring dates are booking fast. If you would like to book a guide trip you can reach me at (903) 629-3683 or check out my web site at www.lakeforktexasfishingreports.com . Until next time.

Fished out Mansfield on Friday, what had started as a tough morning bite ended up being a decent afternoon catch. Most places we waded in the morning held active bait, but no reds nor specks. We threw plastics, along with topwaters with no results. It wasn’t till after 12:00 noon that we began to find redfish on the move between the grass and sand transition. One of the fishermen tied on a gold spoon and had great results, so everyone else threw the same thing and the outcome was productive. The redfish we caught contained crabs in their stomachs which made sense to use the old stand by gold spoon. Water is starting to warm, so look for shrimp to start hatching and redfish right on top of them, and seagulls joining in on the shrimp buffet. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

Report...
For the past week fishing over all has been a bit on the tough side. But, for the month of February that is to be expected. February is the time of year where our cold fronts occur more frequently, for this reason February can be red-hot or Siberian cold, and not too much of in-between. I fished Wednesday thru Sunday with this similar type of pattern. A tough bite one day and the very next day redfish could be found tailing in pods chasing juvenile shrimp, with birds working on top of them. The birds were a sure sign of finding tailing reds. Despite the reports of brown tide there is good water to be found, and that’s not to say that the brown water is not holding any fish. When fishing this discolored water work your bait a bit slower than normal, bait that rattles would be a good choice, like a topwater, or a plastic bait tied to a Mansfield mauler. But, most important is to have patience especially this time of year. No patience, no perseverance, no fish! Our March winds will be arriving soon and so will finding pods of reds tailing in the back bays. The stronger the wind, the greater chance of finding redfish working under the birds or should I say birds working over the redfish. Fish catches should improve as the months of March, April, and May roll around. Our snook catches continue to improve and boy have I seen some big ones. The highlight of the week was a seven pound trout caught and released by my good friend Capt. Charlie Farrell and then followed by Matt Cronin catching a nice size snook. I am now booking snook trips, wade fishing or drifting. You can call me at (956) 266-6454 for further details. Tight Lines Capt. Ernest Cisneros

Report...
Early morning conditions were just right for tailing reds in shallow water. Wind was calm; the water which has warmed up considerably was slick as can be. So, I made an early morning decision to head into the back bays and look for tails. The bait was active and the location had a good number of reds present, but the reds never gave us any signs that they were hungry. We managed to throw at two tailing reds, but they didn’t seem interested in our topwaters, nor plastics. As I would get up on plane and run around looking for bigger concentrations of redfish, or some hungry ones, you could see mud boils just about everywhere. This told me they were hugging the bottom and not very active on their feeding patterns. After an hour of trying, I decided not to wait them out and head to my second location, where we found our only clear water for the day. We made numerous drifts throwing topwaters and we did get a couple of redfish interested in our baits, but no takers. After being persistent and sticking to that area, we were rewarded with twelve year old Jorge hooking and landing his first red ever, and it came on a topwater. After a few more drifts and a lost redfish, I made the decision to try some deep water in search of trout. We managed a few, but no keepers. At around noon time the wind started to kick up so we decided to head on in. It was hard to find clear water north or south of the Arroyo and over all it was a tough day on the water. Despite the unwilling bite, it’s always enjoyable when you got great clients on board. Congratulations Jorge Jr. on your first redfish and hope you have many more to come. Tight Lines, Capt.

I had an 11:00 a.m. commitment at the local boat show today, but I was able to sneak in two hours of snook fishing. The wind was out of the Southeast at 10 mph, skies partly cloudy, and the water temperature right at 65 degrees. Bait was not as active as it has been, however, what little bait there was, it was deep. I threw a top water hoping to get a big snook to crash it, but no takers. We worked several points with no hits at all, until we approached a spot that’s been producing some snook lately. My friend Ruben set the hook on a snook that went 20 inches using a Texas Trout Killer II, the fish was photographed and released. On that same drift Ruben set the hook on a bigger snook, it went about 25” plus, boy, it’s always a pleasure seeing a snook, shake, rattle, and roll like there’s no tomorrow. By this time it was time to head back to the ramp. We got the photo we were looking for and then made the boat show a bit late. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

Report...
Saturday was a bit on the chilly side, air temperature in the morning was in the mid 50'ies, as well as the water temperature holding in the low 50'ies. Capt. Tricia, Skinnywater Adventures, invited my son and me on a quest for cold water trout fishing. Our first stop was an area with mud bottom that held some nice deep holes where some fish might be hunkered down in the mud. We guessed it right, despite the cold water, the fish were very eager to take our soft plastics. Fish were pretty much concentrated in the deeper holes early on. Baits that enticed a bite were TTK’s in white and chartreuse, Norton Bull Minnows in pumpkinseed, chartreuse tail and few trout were caught on a Baby minus 1. The morning bite was excellent; several times we threw into deeper pockets and pulled out 3 to 4 fish out of the same hole. As the wind switched out of the East, we decided to move to our second location. We spread ourselves out working depths anywhere from knee to belly deep water, the bite was not as active as the morning, but the quality and size of the fish did improve. It all started with me hooking on to a very energetic 25” plus trout, and then losing two in the 24 inch category right at my side. On one occasion I had my rod bent with a nice trout at the end of my line, when Capt. Tricia concentrating in shallower water, hooked on to a trophy trout that acted very much like a tarpon, the trout came clearly out of the water and danced on her tail, then headed straight at Capt. Tricia, and then made several mouth thrashings, sending water everywhere. As the sow got near, she wanted nothing but to get away. Well, she made one more slap with her tail on the water, and the line busted, and off she went. We stood there in awe of the performance she put on. I then continued our wade with landing another 24 inch trout, taking photos of her and then releasing it to fight another day. Numerous reds were also caught in the same areas. Despite the cold temperatures of the air and water, we managed a very productive day on the water. Cold days don’t always mean to stay home and wish you were fishing, get out and fish these conditions, it will only make you a better fishermen. Remember to work your baits slow and stay warm with several layers of clothing. Thanks Capt. Tricia for a wonderful time out on the water. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

My good friend Capt. Ram Rodriguez joined my son and I on a quest for some Texas snook. We had a late start, but the first cast was an indication of what was to come. My son's first cast yielded a respectable 24 inch trout. As he was landing his trout, my line took off like it had been latch on to a freight train. I could not hold the fish back; as it proceeded into the oyster beds intentionally my line became slack, so that was the end of the battle. As I was rigging up, Capt. Ram had a fight at the end of his pole. He was able to pull out the uncooperative oversize red from the sharp oyster beds. We took a photo and released it to fight another day. The slight northeast wind that accompanied us, allowed us to drift along the oyster filled bank, while we drifted we worked the drop off with TTK II’s and Norton Bull Minnows in the pumpkinseed color. Working these lures with a slow retrieve produced numerous hookups on trout, reds, and some prized snook. We continued to work one particular bank line because of the amount of nervous bait that was present, and our persistence paid off, with Capt. Ram hooking on to a massive, water trashing, yellow mouth trout. Photos were taken of her and released unharmed. With that trout, Capt. Ram was able to score a Texas slam with 29 inch trout, 28 ½ inch redfish, and a 24 ½ inch snook. On one of drifts we witnessed a serious commotion of a large school of jack fish gorging on shad at the water’s surface, so we moved in on them and we were rewarded with all three of us hooking up at the same time. The first jack was landed after a 20 minute battle, with the other two taking at least 25 minutes to land. Talk about our shoulders being sore, my twelve year old son commented “I don’t think I could bring in another one right now “. By the way we did indeed land one more jack after that. And in addition we also managed to land a few more reds and one more snook, as the tide became slack right about 2:00 p.m. So we called it a day, leaving the water with our shoulders a little sore and our reels receiving a good workout. We kept two trout for dinner and all other fish were released. If you yearn to catch a fish on steroids (Snook) or a yellow mouth trophy trout give me a call at (956) 266-6454 or e-mail me at captainernestcisneros@yahoo.com. The best chance for a trophy trout or prize snook is coming up in the months of February and March. Be sure to check out my latest photos. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

David Vance’s Lake Fork Fishing Report 01/26/05 Hello from Lake Fork, Texas! The fishing has been good in between cold fronts. The good thing is we are having more warm days than cold ones. All the bass we have been catching have been in 3-8 ft. of water over and on the edge of the grass. Best baits for me have been a ¾ ounce Rat-l Trap, red with a chartreuse belly and a suspending Rouge, black back, silver sides, orange belly. In the last couple of days we have also caught fish on a ¾ ounce spinner bait, chartreuse and white with a Colorado willow nickel and gold blades, but most of our fish have been on the Rat-l Trap and suspending rouge. Best places for me right now have been the main lake and secondary points leading halfway back in the creeks. Right now I am covering a lot of water and not sitting in one place very long, but I will fish the areas up and down two to three times before I leave. The bass are not chasing the bait and you have to get it close to them to hit your bait. This is why a lipless crank bait works so good this time of year. You can easily fish it over the grass and cover lots of water. This pattern is a lot of work but it pays off big right now. This pattern will only get better moving into February as these bass get into a solid pre-spawn pattern. The water temp right now at mid day is 50-52 degrees. The lake is at normal level and in good shape. The grass in the above areas is in real good shape, just really healthy. Right now through April gives you the optimum conditions to catch your trophy bass. Spring dates are booking fast. If you would like to book a guide trip you can reach me at (903) 629-3683 or check out my web site at www.lakeforketexasfishingreports.com . Until next time. Good Fishing! David Vance

It's always a pleasure fishing with friends in Baffin. Met up with Capt. Charlie Farrell, Ruben, and Aniceto for a full day of fishing. The weather did cooperate on Saturday, the water was a bit stained and the bite started off slow. We all threw different kinds and colors of baits, hoping for the big momma trout. After the sun started to rise higher in the sky the bait began to move around. And soon after the trout began to be interested in our baits. Aniceto, Charlie, and I, landed, photographed, and released three respectable trout in the five pound class. Other trout were caught in waist deep water with mud shell bottom using corkies and Texas Trout Killers II, working them with a slow retrieve seemed to work best. A few undersize reds were mixed in with the trout. But the larger slot size reds were hanging right against the shorelines. We ended the day wading shorelines full of bait, but the bite seemed to have turned off by the afternoon. It was a great day to be on the water with some good friends and enjoy what God has placed for us to respect and enjoy. Tip of the week. Sharpen your hooks! I know you already know that, but when's the last time you sharpened them. It made a difference on my hook sets. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros www.tightlinescharters.com

On Wednesday afternoon, I decided to check out the snook hole. The bait was active from the beginning till the end, immediately hooked on to some nice reds on topwater. The snook bite did'nt start till about 5:00 p.m. and when it did it lasted till dark. The key to getting a snook to bite was letting the lure drop to the bottom and slowly picking it up along 5 feet of water. The snook were also very aggressive on she-dogs. We had numerous break offs when the snook headed into the osyters, then only to have your line back minus a lure. It was all fun in seeing the snook do their acrobatics on the water. I also witnessed something I had never seen before, hundreds and hundreds of skip jacks busting the water. We attempted to find out what was beneath them, but we found skip jacks on every cast. We called it a day going home with some shredded lines, and minus a couple of topwaters. Ah! Its all fun. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

I had the pleasure of guiding Dana Dinnes, Larry Pellack, and his wife Althea. The conditions were pretty harsh with the temperature never getting near the 70's like the weather man had predicted. Visabilty was 300 yards up until noon and even then visabilty stood at 1,000 yards because of the blanket of fog that lingered all day. The wind was out of the Northwest and drizzle fell most of the day. Amazingly, the water temperature was about 71 degrees. Started out early near deep water with a slow bite, but did manage to pick up a couple of keeper trout. Our next stop was at Green Island, bait seemed to be active but not the game fish. Did pick up one more keeper there. And off we went to our third spot. I decided to check out some skinny water North of the Arroyo and found nothing worth while, the fish were just not holding in shallow water. Our next venture led us South of the Arroyo to a spot where we have been catching some nice trout lately. This area holds about 5-6 feet of water with large potholes. The trick to enticing a strike was casting your lure past the pothole, as the lure came across the pothole we slowed it down and worked the bottom. It seemed to work effectively with more keeper trout being boxed, along with some dinks that we released. At the end of the day we had a respectable box of trout considering the weather conditions that challenged us. Despite the weather I had a great time guiding these folks from Iowa. Tight Lines, Capt.

Went out for a couple of hours to target some snook. The tide was up and the bait was almost non-existent. I have experienced that an outgoing tide seems to be more productive in this particular area. The first hour we landed a couple of undersized reds and one keeper trout. After trying a couple of other spots we found a hole where snook were holding. We hooked on to five snook but landed three, a 17, 22, and a 24 inch. One snook stripped my line to the point that I could not hold it back, and it headed directlty into the osyter beds only to cut my line off. The snook were photographed and then released. A fat 28 inch redfish was also caught out of the same hole. Fish were caught on TTK's II and a slow sinking Catch 2000 in a mullet imitation. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

Happy New Year to everyone! Today I chartered Marion Yoder, his son Chris and co workers. Eleven year old Chris was really looking forward for this trip for awhile. He was rewarded with two trout and a redfish at the end of his line. Dad and co workers also managed to land a few trout each. I decided to try some new water way down south of the Arroyo. It was the right choice. We were rewarded with solid trout hookups. Fish were found in 4 feet, semi-clear water with large potholes. By mid morning the tide was really rolling. This caused the fish to move into deeper water. Every trout that was caught came out of a pothole, and working the lure slow seemed to make a big difference. Redfish were also in the same general area but it was difficult to get them to bite. All fish were caught on plastic Texas Trout Killers in the salt & pepper and bone color. Tight Lines, Capt.

After a late start today, we decided to target some Snook. We arrived at our location at about 10:30 a.m. Just about the third cast my son hooked on to a huge thirty inch trout. The funny part about this trout was that it was almost devoured by a pelican. As the trout was doing its dance on the water here comes this pelican and tries to swallow it. After we took photos of her we released her unhurt. We picked up a few more fish before noon. As the tide started to roll in about 1:00 p.m. the fish turned on like wild fire. Another thirty inch trout was landed and released. And the highlight of the day were not the two thirty inch trout, but two thirty inch Snook that fought like there was no tommorrow. If you have never experienced a Snook fight. Its like a mini tarpon, a bass, a redfish on steroids, and a trout all put into one package. And the best part about it is that you don't have to travel to Florida to catch one. The bite did last for an unbelieveable three solid hours. At the end of the bite we had caught and released seventeen Snook from fifteen all the way to thiry inches. Six trout, two that went thirty inches, and six keeper redfish. All fish came on Texas Trout Killers II-white with chartruse tail and Texas Trout Killers-pumpkin seed. When booking a Snook charter I strickly encourage catch and release only. Photos of this trip will be posted after New Year's. And now that 2004 is almost over and it's leaving us with a great finish. I hope that it only gets better in 2005. Tight Lines, Capt.

Today, I fished with Mike McBride and Tricia (Skinny Water Adventures-Port Mansfield). Our objective of the day was to pole in and around the spoil banks south of the Arroyo. We were looking to catch some big trout and reds in skinny water. Early on the fish were sluggish, we could see them and cast at them but they wouldn't take. It wasn't until Tricia broke the ice with the first red of the day. And then immeditatly followed with several more hook-ups. While Mike took photos we continued to spot reds as many as six in a group. Some decent trout were also spotted in about 1 1/2 of water. The fish seemed to be hunkered down on muddy bottom and were more concentrated in and around channels that led to the intercoastal. The hightlight of the day was Tricia's 40 inch redfish that gave her a fight for a full 15 minutes or more. After the monsterous fight the fish was photographed, video taped, and released. If you want to see some awesome pictures and video of this fish go to: www.skinnywateradventures.com Around the Three Islands area there are scattered redfish in about two feet of water, and the deeper water at the mouth of the Arroyo is holding keeper trout. All fish came on plastics with zero topwater bite. Thanks Mike and Tricia for a pleasurable day on the water. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

I had an invite from some friends to fish the legendary Baffin Bay on Monday and Tuesday. First day we got a late start, temperatures were in the upper 40's early on. We waded in water close to chest deep all the way to knee deep. The early morning bite was slow but picked up as the sun warmed up the water close to noon time. A few fish were picked up before noon, but most fish came after 1:00 p.m. We focused around active bait and semi muddy bottom with potholes. All of the nice fat trout we caught were photographed and released. They ranged from 24 to 26 inches. A few that went close to seven to eight pounds(27 to 28 inches) were lost as the big mommas spit out our hooks. We fished till dark and ended up with a nice stringer of good eating trout and some redfish. The next day we started early and again fished semi muddy bottom, the bait was more active because the flats had warmed up faster than the previous day. Most fish came out of thigh deep water, and the highlight of the day was my son catching and releasing a 6 1/2 pound trout. Photographs were taken of her and then released to fight another day. Photographs of that trip will be posted later because my web designer is on vactions. Many thanks to Marcus Arredondo and Ruben Pena for your hospitality it will be remembered for a very long time.

The wind shifted out of the South at 15-20 mph. The morning was still a bit chilly and water temperature around 65 degrees. The early morning bite produced 2 trout with each one of us having numerous taps on our baits. The previous day, the bite heated up at around noon time, so was the same today. Redfish could be found in potholes with water depth around 3 feet. Today the reds were not thick, but scattered in around flats covered with potholes. Trout were also mixed in with the reds. And as the flats grew warmer you could certainly notice a more aggressive bite at the end of your line. What worked best was working your plastic slowly through these potholes. In one particular hole I stood there for 30 minutes and managed to pull out 7 reds. At the end of a grinding, but fun day we had a nice stringer of fish. I want to point out that active bait, warming flats, and structure such as potholes made the difference at the end of our lines. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest Cisneros

The past couple of days we have had light North winds with the temperatures climbing very rapidly by mid morning. You can diffently noticed a pattern early in the morning with schools of baitfish moving from deep to shallow and not far behind will you find the gamefish. As the sun warms up the water the redfish and trout get thicker near spoils or flats with potholes that are ajacent to the intercoastal. Redfish to oversize and trout in the 5 to 8 lb class can be seen in areas such as mentioned south of the Arroyo. We worked other flats and found redfish everywhere with decent trout mixed in. As light as the wind has been it has made it favorable for podding reds found in groups up to 20. The last couple of days have been a sightcasters dream. Reds easy to pick off where water is clear. I would like to point out that the mid morning bite has been excellent, so I would venture to say that there is no need to leave the dock at daybreak. Almost all of our catches have been on plastics worked slowly off the bottom with the TTK II in white and chartruse beening a good choice to start with. Winter redfishing in December is as good as it gets as long as the weather permits. Tight Lines, Capt. Ernest

The redfish bite is really taking off!!! After a slow fall the redfish seem to be making a early winter push. There is some action still under the birds. Most of the fish are small , but there are some nice trout that are still being caught on plastics and topwater. The redfish are mixed in with the trout and are running alittle bit deeper. They can also be caught on plastics but the better bite seems to be on gold spoons Flouder fihing is remaining steady with some fish up to 4 1/2 pounds be caught.

Lake Fork has been a little slow this week avg 20 fsh a day. Although the fishing was a little slow the big fish have seemed to turn on a little. Last week and weekend i was booked every day including today. We had a day with an 9lb and a 8lb, a day with an 8 1/2lb bass today we had another 8, a day with a 7, and the day with the 9 and 8 I had a cleint hang a fish I would guess around 15 lbs. Its the biggest fish Ive had hung out of my boat in a couple of years. I had a clent catch a 13lb bass last year and this fish was much bigger. I regret to say that the fish straightened out a 4/0 gamakatsu hook.It was such a drag but the day was saved with other big fish. My deep bite has almost completly shut off. The topwater bite is gone, so the way to fish has changed. Ive been fishing main lake humps,road beds, and grass lines in 6-14 feet. This is where we are starting out and staying all day. Im roatating between 4 or 5 spots through out the day. I have been throwing carolina rigs and texas rigs for the most part. On both rigs Im throwing baby brush hogs, centipedes and baby lake fork cretures all in green pumpkin with the tips dyed in chartruse.Ive also caught some of the bigger fish on a 10 1/2 inch zoom ol monster worm in tequlia sunrise. Ive been staying with these because they have been out producing anything else Ive thrown. If you get a chance to come out you should do so and if you need a guide I would be happy to help. To Book a trip call 903-765-3980 or visit www.fishinlakefork.com Thank you Guide Jimmy Everett Sponsored by: Skeeter, Yamaha, Action Optics, Fun-N-Sun Sporting Centers Just like to say Ive been with Skeeter for the last 3 years and they have one of the finest bass boats made, And ive been in every bass boat their is I think.
